Meeting the Challenges of Quality Assurance and Accountability in the new National Curriculum Statement (NCS)

South Africa’,s democratic government inherited a divided and unequal system of education. The curriculum of South Africa and that of Gauteng Province has, since 1995, undergone radical transformation. A range of Legislation and curriculum policies have been developed, which are underpinned by transformation principles, namely access, redress, quality and equity. At its broadest level, our education and its curriculum express our idea of ourselves as a society and our vision as to how we see the new form of society being realised through our children and learners. This paper therefore focuses on the principles underpinning the examination system, the challenges relating to the National Senior Certificate assessment system and the support strategies that are used to improve assessment quality and learner performance.
